Deb & Anthony,

You do not know me, and I never met Alana, but I know Judith. We sing and play guitar together at her church. Just want you to know there are folks in Vermont that are sharing your grief and have been praying for you. When my son was born he was constantly congested and they told me it could be cystic fibrosis. Your family has lived with that horrible diagnosis. Alana certainly was a lovely young lady.

I encourage you to find one of these videos when you are ready - Heaven is for Real and Miracle from Heaven - both are beautiful stories of children that experienced heaven. Maybe it will help you appreciate that Alana is now free of her CF and living a life in the wonders of heaven - a place that is just as real as the comforts of your home.

I know you must be filled with the why Gods and miss her greatly. I will continue to pray for you that you will grow to know His peace and in time will find the way to release your grief and turn sorrows into peace and rejoicing.

In His love, shalom,

Martha Hafner
